Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

I found some early David Jones-type material in my iTunes the other day. "I'm Not Losing Sleep" is a slick pop number that pre-dates his Modern Love era material. I also found "Can't Help Thinking About Me", credited to The Lower Third. Great driving strumming guitar and his statement style of vocalizing.

@Doug: so true. The group wallowing has been very meaningful and enjoyable for me. I like hearing everyone's personal interpretations. I was obsessed with him in junior high-high school time, but it was partly a huge crush and my way of obsessing meant playing a few records over and over, not exploring the whole ouvre, so I'm learning a lot of new music from these tributes too.

The weird thing for me is, I was never that huge a fan. I never found anything not to like or even love from Bowie. But his music/art/presence was never in my personal wheelhouse. But listening deeply to so many smart, thoughtful retrospectives has pushed me over the top. And now I have an even greater capacity for love. Headspinning.

The New York Times ran a piece by Jon Pareles on Iggy Pop's reaction to Bowie's death. Embedded in the story was a video of Bowie and Iggy being interviewed on the Dinah Shore show in '77. It is absolutely captivating and the interview is shockingly well done. Bowie comes off as massively loving and generous. Well worth watching — after Explorers Room: youtu.be...

There's no substitute for Brel's performance of this song, and Scott Walker's is probably better, but this is always sort of my favorite

I always felt there was a suspiciously close resemblance between this Neu! and the coda to Sweet Thing, and always wanted to play them back to back. Generally people identify the title track of Station to Station as the first sign of krautrock influence, but I think it happens on Diamond Dogs

Avatar 8:17pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Zackly that. *&* he was hugely Popular doing it. Everybody is Influenced - even Neu! So have good taste in doing it...Iggy says Johnny Cash informed the Stooges' 1st album's minimalism that defined Punk - & bellydance rhythms! ('Our tastes were sophisticated - & our skills limited'.) All this this week has me thinking how much Bowie is Thee Greatest @ putting things together as his natural gift & way - Concept & Pop - 'cetera 'cetera...I just smh - awes me yerknow...

@C: Lodger is really one of my very very favorites. It underwhelmed so many people but I think it's just brilliant. It's hard to follow up Low and Heroes, you know?

Bowie used cut-up techniques for many of his lyrics, quite notably so in this song
Avatar 8:21pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

On Destination Out Jeff J just posted:

Here's Bowie talking with William S. Burroughs about his fans. Underlining how his project was more aimed at them than anything else: "I don't like to read things that people write about me. I'd rather read what kids have to say about me, because it's not their profession to do that. People look to me to see what the spirit of the Seventies is, at least 50% of them do. Critics I don't understand. They get too intellectual. They're not very well-versed in street talk; it takes them longer to say it."

- & that floors me. He's the smartest & makes it street. No wonder Ziggy prefigured Punk...
Avatar 8:23pm

it's funny too, seeing as he's likely the most earnestly intellectual musicians of his time, alongside maybe Scott Walker

Townshend saying Bowie was his Salvador Dali - which I take as the realizer of extraordinary imaginings...
Avatar 8:25pm
Flash Strap:

so contradictory: on Bewlay Brothers he once said, dismissively “it's Star Trek in a leather jacket.” Yet it seems likely that it's a dense poetic reference to his half brother Terry Burns, who had schizophrenia and seizures. Always eliding, distancing, disguising his intentions

I agree Doug. It was so celebrated in the American market, and right so I suppose, but the fact is: it paints a portrait of america as a pop art armageddon, a land of cardboard people consumed by the society of the spectacle
Avatar 9:04pm
Flash Strap:

I have to counter what you said earlier, Rabbit, and posit that Bowie, more than anything, was an artist of the highest caliber; the pop song was merely his medium of choice. Rock idol, pop star, what have you: those are shadows cast by the true form
Avatar 9:05pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

His diction is clear in the mix - you can hear what he says clearly in it. I think the Audience picked up on it a lot - but I can't totally understand or represent what the 'average' listener got...There is ambiguity - Bowie celebrates the American rhythm & sound - & they are Kids he portrays after all - so a little wiggle room? Compare to 'Born in the USA' in the misreading...
Okay - here's what I think happens a lot: people get that a bad situation is alluded to - they think in passing - & think that's enuff - give it a nod like you're in on it, & you're validated to carry on boogieing on Saturday night w/ no further disturbance...So yeah - they miss it...& smugly...

I was too shallow to get him most of the time. I never looked past the sequins to see the beauty and sadness and truth. The loss of Bowie as a mortal among us can't be reversed. That his death can help bring about the loss of my own ignorance—that is a loving gift.

You're on it man.
It's very English too, of course - this view of America.
Bowie as Vocalist - this alone is worth discourse. Always a very important instrument to me - his voice. A R&R singer - but very much a Crooner - which all devolves thru Sinatra inevitably.

That has been my sensation all week, that I missed something. And that I am getting a second chance.
